Pelosi is not in charge

The feel-good story of the day is supposed to be "Pelosi rips AOC, says her posse in Congress is ‘like five people.’"

But Pelosi is wrong. She is delusional. She is out of touch. She is the Bill Kristol of her party.

Her quick quip masks the reality. Decades of the nasty, filthy hatred of America that Democrats have drilled into the heads of kids in school have come back to haunt the party.

Taught that America is a genocidal, racist, sexist and otherwise deplorable country, new generations of Democrats hate America. They demand reparations. Now. They demand open borders. Now. They demand free stuff. Now.



And yes, Democrats did this. The professors and many of the schoolteachers are lock-step loyalists to the party.

Pelosi and her fellow septuagenarians in House leadership are the five people. They lack the votes to control the House. Her PAC money bought the title of speaker, but that's it. No one listens to her. They backed a little old white lady last time. Look where it got them.

They move on.

Politico reported, "More than 150 progressive leaders and groups are lining up behind Rep. Ilhan Omar amid intensifying attacks from the right over her controversial comments about the September 11 terror attacks.

"Their 'solidarity' letter comes a day after Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the U.S. Capitol Police and the House sergeant-at-arms to conduct 'a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff,' following a Twitter post from President Donald Trump that Omar said has sparked threats against her life."

Solidarity. They are with Omar and against the United States.

Democrats have gone from Never Forget to Forget 9/11. They dismiss it as some people did something. This happens when children are not raised right.

David Frum of the Atlantic warned, "Democrats Are Falling Into the Ilhan Omar Trap! By rushing to stand with the controversial congresswoman, the 2020 contenders are allowing Trump to transform her into the face of their party."

I agree.

Frum wrote, "It cannot be pleasant for Omar’s colleagues to have to wonder and worry what that next remark will be — knowing that Donald Trump and his Twitter feed will be waiting to blame all Democrats for the provocations of one. But by not putting themselves on record about Omar when they could, Democrats now find themselves bound to her for the duration. This problem will get worse, and its political consequences will become ever more costly for Democrats who want to win national elections and govern the country."

But before you can win national office, first you must win the party's nomination. Pelosi cannot deliver that. Omar can.

As for the death threats against Omar, she lies. This is Jussie Smollett 2.0.

Smollett got away with his. Democrats think this will protect her from criticism, but they called President Donald John Trump "Hitler" one billion times too many for this to have any effect.

After Smollett, sane people shrug off any unverified claim of death threats.

AOC's policies are suicidal. The question is whether they will kill the party or become adopted and destroy the nation.

  1. There will soon be a feel good moment for those dems rushing to excuse Omar, in the wake of some faked attack on her. Bet that.

    Nancy will know it's fake and will lose what little grasp she still has hedging her outrage.

  2. We still need to investigate Ilhan the evil for her marriage to her brother.
    If it looks like immigration fraud.....

  3. "Decades of the nasty, filthy hatred of America that Democrats have drilled into the heads of kids in school have come back to haunt the party."

    If only it was that simple. Until conservatives begin to understand our part in this, will be stuck with the lunatics on the left especially here in California. Watching the GOP control the house under Paul Ryan who served his corporate Masters and refused to deal with illegal immigration or legislate against Obamacare, made it clear that there was plenty of blame to go around, even if conservatives merely looked the other way while all this was going on.

    1. This is entirely correct. Trump was hurt more by Ryan and the Republicans than any commie on the left. Inexpensive labor is the heat powering capitalism in a global world. Trump's efforts to salvage its victims has brought firey rage upon him. No one could blame him for withdrawal or escape but he has set his life upon a cast and will stand the hazard of the die. Those who do not stand with him will get exactly what they wish for and will regret, too late to try again.

  7. I only find "death threats" claims credible when arrests are made (AND prosecuted. No Kim Foxx black privilege nonsesne counts). Otherwise just more fake noose.

  9. I don't doubt that Omar has received death threats. Congress critters get death threats all the time (over 4 per capita per year). Steve Scalise, who has survived an actual assassination attempt, has received a number of threats. Susan Collins and Ted Cruz have received envelopes containing mysterious white powders and unhinged threats. Oddly enough, Omar's threats appear to be much more newsworthy than the ones against Republicans. I wonder why that is. (Ha! Just kidding)

    1. Susan Collins usually votes with those who threaten her. Kinda like Babs Streisand donating to a party led by Omar.

    2. I've read that 2 reasons so many republicans retired before last mid terms were 1) the Mueller investigation and 2) death threats and attacks on people in Trump's administration (e.g. Sarah Sanders).

  10. Don, "As for the death threats against Omar, she lies."
    she's as safe as any Rep, or more so -- but she probably is getting "death threats", like FB spam. I'd bet fewer than Sandmann, who is likely also safe, now.

    She and Dems like her are certainly because of "the nasty, filthy hatred of America that Democrats have drilled into the heads of kids in school".

  11. Heck, I peacefully demonstrated against Obama's policies and somehow was ID'ed and received 3 death threats mailed to me. No police investigation, just a report written, and no mail threat investigation by the FBI. Hey, I am a nobody so my life isn't worth too much, I assume. Seems to me, while it is against the law to threaten elected officials, but for you and me, at least in my state, some action directly against you has to happen before the threat will count as a criminal attack.

  12. "Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the U.S. Capitol Police and the House sergeant-at-arms to conduct 'a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family and her staff," that hardly seems necessary, in fact it's overkill.

    Ilhan Omar is already very well protected: she's got the Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Quaida, HAMAS, ISIS- why she's got actual armies protecting her, and that's not even counting the dictators at the U.N!
